    Note that “burelage” is misspelled everywhere it occurs; otherwise, very nice. An alternative word is burelé, but burelage seems to be commonest in the U.S..

      C. Clements — Welcome to DCStamps. Also I appreciate you catching my error. I have fixed appropriately.

    Greetings from Denmark. I collect letters from the transfer period from 1.4 to 30 -1917. Both with usa stamps and DWI frimæker – can you / anyone help me.

    We have a stamp: Dansk Vestindiske OER 10 Francs blue circle in middle with red frame. Do you know the catalog value or where we could find it?

    • Michael says:

      Hi Dan,
      Thank you for taking the time to visit DCStamps.
      First of all, without seeing the stamp it is difficult to identify. But I can say that it is not a postage stamp, as a 10 franc postage stamp was not issued. Therefore, it is probably a revenue stamp (used to pay taxes or for various government services). Honestly I don’t know very much about revenue stamps, but it was issued in 1905 or later, when currency changed from dollars & cents to bits & francs. The Barefoot Catalogue covers revenues, but beyond that, I can’t really help you.
      Sorry, and I wish you luck on your search.
      Michael

      H i – Can you send a scan of the stamps – I am not aware of the existence of a 10 F Best Tony

      • Michael says:

        Tony, My comment about a “10F was issued” was a typo. As you can see from the context, I meant to say “was NOT issued”.
        Michael
